How do you define anti-Semitism?

Not, I suspect, as Obama's State Department is apparently defining it:

We welcome the opportunity to speak here today, as the problem of intolerance and discrimination against Muslims is an issue across the OSCE region. The United States strongly supports combating all forms of discrimination and intolerance against Muslims and is taking efforts to build mutual respect between people of all faiths. The U.S. government works continuously to ensure that person of all faiths, including Muslims, can freely enjoy the fundamental freedom of religion. We raise these concerns with our Allies, partners, and others - both within the OSCE and without. The U.S. Government's Annual Report on International Religious Freedom addresses these concerns in detail within the OSCE region and around the world.

In the OSCE region, for example, the free practice of Islam is severely constrained in different ways - from overt prejudices to non-support for structures that allow religious observance. In some participating States, Muslim communities have great difficulty operating mosques not controlled or sanctioned by the state, sometimes resulting in problematic penalties for this activity. In some states, in fact, one can't even build a mosque. In some states, registration systems often disproportionately burden small Muslim religious communities, and some countries' legal systems ban personal religious expression--restrictions which inevitably limit freedoms we all hold dear.

But I am not here today to name and shame. Rather, I would like to talk about how the United States has changed its entire framework for engagement with Muslim communities, and for the need to move beyond mere tolerance to partnerships based on mutual respect.

That, and more, coming from Hannah Rosenthal, Obama's... you ready for this... Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism.  Yea... really.

With props to Soccer Dad who's referencing what Ms. Rosenthal might instead be monitoring and combatting.

Yes we are bending over backwards to protect muslims from exposure to other religious views in Michigan and we are allowing muslims to build a mosque nearly on top of ground zero which they will without any doubt dedicate as a memorial to the slaughter of 3000 of our loved ones.

In two and a half more years this asshole will have us all in chains.

i wouldn't go so far as to say that obama was a muslim. But then my primary reason for doing so is that I do not believe that he would admit to the existence of any being greater than himself.

I think we should follow the tolerance level that Muslims give Christians and Jews in lands that they occupy. If we follow their example we can't go wrong!

"The United States strongly... (Below threshold)

"The United States strongly supports combating all forms of discrimination and intolerance against Muslims" all the while turning a blind eye to the inherent religious intolerance of Islam to all other religions.

What fools are in the State Dept that would even begin to propose such asshatery?

Oh yea, the same as the one's in the Justice Dept that dismissed the voting rights case in Philadelphia.

"Fulfilling the President's vision requires a long-term effort, and there remains much to be done. While our framework may have changed, the urgency of anti-Muslim discrimination and greater engagement with Muslims everywhere has not."

Long term vision is out come November. Lame duck vision therafter.

Jim Addison:

Throughout history, just sucking up to the violent barbarians at the gate has always proved sufficient, buying just enough time for magic unicorns to come to the rescue.

Or maybe not, but that seems to be the controlling philosophy behind Comrade Obama's policies.
